Ruby is a programming language universally adored by developers and students alike. The Ruby on Rails Coding Bootcamp at 9to5Toys Specials is the perfect starting point for the newcomer, with six engaging video courses for $29.

You start with a gentle introduction via Ruby on Rails for Beginners, a five-hour course that first explains how applications are built, before showing you how to set up your development environment and write some basic code. You can then build your knowledge with Ruby on Rails for Web Development and Comprehensive Ruby on Rails, cloning major sites (e.g. Pinterest) and getting stuck in to building basic apps (e.g search engine). Learn Ruby on Rails by Building Projects lets you hone your newly-found skills, while The Professional Ruby on Rails Developer teaches you how to use the Model-View-Controller framework, Git for versioning, cloud-based IDEs, and Test-Driven Development (TDD). The final track looks at Behavior-Driven Development (BDD) with RSpec 3 and Capybara.
